for this opportunity to discuss the president's fiscal year 20 '14 budget request for the department of defense. allow me to express my appreciation also to this committee force continued support of our men and women in uniform and our entire civilian workforce. these people are doing tremendous work. they're making great sacrifices along with their families as they have for more than 11 years. 11 years our nation has been at war. whether fighting in afghanistan, patrolling the world's sea lanes, standing vigil at on the korean peninsula, supplying our troops around the world or supporting civil authorities when natural disasters strike. they're advancing america's interests at home and abroad. their dedication and professionalism are the foundation of our military strength. as we discussed numbers, budgets and strategic priorities, we will not lose sight of these men and women serving across the globe. as you all know so very well, their well being depends on the decisions that we all make here in washington today, the department of defense faces a significant challenge of conducting long-term planni
needs to be changed if at all? >> do you mean the whole defense? >> when it comes to north korea. i think you have to be very careful that when you say something you do not back away from it. i think we have shown a propensity to do that, and not just this administration but other administrations. worldappens around the watches us. they see as pulling back our defense spending. ony see as pulling back commitments, i will not as a commitment. we have not done that yet. we have pulled back. we had a big fight now could 2009 over missile defense. we lost that to the administration. they cut missile defense. now with korea's latest action, they released that. i was happy to see that. i thought we should have been moving forward back them could 2009. one of the things that bothers me is that the president has more knowledge than any of us. knows what a crucial stage we are in, not just korea. that is the one on the front page, but iran has not stopped. and they keep moving. the whole middle east. china is increasing their defense spending. syria. these are things that are happening all a

in this race and our thoughts are with all of them today. the department of defense is prepared to respond quickly to any response for additional support from domestic law enforcement agencies. i will continue to consult closely with d.o.d. senior leaders on how we can best support the government's response and investigation. and chairman dempsey may have additional comments regarding this event as well. mr. chairman, i will now turn to my opening statement for this hearing. this year's 2014 budget request for the department of defense is -- as congressman lowey noted, a budget that was put together over many months. an enterprise as large as the department of defense, $600 billion is not collaborated with or on or numbers or budgets instructed in a manner of two or three months. and as we proceed in this hearing this morning, mr. chairman, we will get into some of the specifics of the budget and why some of the decisions were made on the basis of what the numbers will reveal and our responsibilities. allow me to express my appreciation to this subcommittee for its continued support of our
the department of defense but the entire government some to the house some idea month-to-month how much money they will have. your ability to plan is gone. we hope we will fix sequestration before it hits, we don't. now we're here in april wondering if it's going to continue into 2014. i don't think it's any one party is pulte. but all threelt, need to come together and recognize absented decision we're having a devastating impact on many parts of our government but certainly our national security which is supposed to be paramount. you cannot plan strategy when you do not know how much money will have month-to-month. i applaud the chairman for urging the reconciliation to come together and i look forward to finding a solution to that. i look forward to hearing from the witnesses. thus challenging as all of this is, we will deal with it. we will make the decisions. we have certainly faced tougher times in the past and have come through it. it is a challenge that we will meet. i look for to hearing from witnesses today. thank you, mr. chair. >> mr. secretary. >> chairman, ranking member smith,
150 are press conference on missile defense, dr. jim miller stated "at that time, the threat was uncertain. we didn't know we would see today what we are now." it sounds like we were waiting on the north koreans to succeed in developing missile to attack the united states before we need to improve our own missile defenses. i have to ask the hard question, is this going to be the posture of the obama administration in dealing with evolving iranian's program. do we need to wait for success or iranians before we deploy additional capability? are we going to try to meet the threats before they are deployed? >> congressman, thank you. let me begin with this. you know what the administration's policy is on iran. president obama preventing iran from developing a nuclear weapon. >> i don't think iranians are as clear as the president would like them to be. >> there's a lot of things we would like the iranians to be clear on. but i think the president has been clear on this, our allies have been clear on this, we have, as you know, many channels 5 king on this diplomatic p- plus 1 th

begin this hour with a tough, new warning to north korea from the defense secretary of the united states. chuck hagel. he says kim jong-un, is skating, in his words, very close to a dangerous line. the communist leader could order a missile test launch at any moment. we're being told that the north koreans are military masters of deception who may have something else up their sleeves, as well. our pentagon correspondent, barbara starr, is joining us now with the latest. barbara? >> reporter: wolf, military masters of deception, indeed. and new indications that the north koreans may have some other plans up their sleeve. defense secretary chuck hagel's message to kim jong-un and his north korean regime, enough is enough. >> with its bellicose rhetoric, with its actions, have been skating very close to a dangerous line. >> reporter: in the hours before an expected north korean missile test, hagel made clear, the u.s. military is ready to respond. >> our country is fully prepared to deal with any contingency, any action, that north korea may take or any provocation. >> reporter: the joint c
today that the defense intelligence agency now believes with three is capable of delivering a nuclear weapon on a ballistic missile. that memo had been classified. the congressman was not responsible. someone at the pentagon mistakenly marked as unclassified. importantly here tonight what is your reaction to this revelation from the defense intelligence agency? >> well, as you know, i chaired the subcommittee for the armed services committee, so i have access to that classified information and i cannot even confirm or deny something that has been put up once it is classified. when i can tell you, very, very concerned about the weapons that north korea has. one of the things that we have been saying for weeks now is we should not take the situation in north korea as lightly as something. a very serious situation that we are taking seriously. lou: you as well as the audience of the broadcast will hear what the president has to say. for the first time speaking on north korea since he began his bellicose assault on the united states and south korea. >> now is the time for north korea to e
homeland defense but as the sequestration starts to move downstream, we start to see more and more negative impacts on the readiness of our force. so what it means to air combat command is that the forces that are back here that are going to be training to get ready to come and relieve the ones that are on station will not have adequate flying hours, will not have adequate training, potentially not have it, and that's kind of the world that we're in right now. >> ok. i think it is important. many of us were very pleased when we did the defense appropriations bill to carry forth year end to replace the c.r., but even with that, the notion that a third of our air combat units are standing down from now to year end is something that should cause us some significant anxiety. i know it worries me. you talk a little bit and there were also some information in your testimony about the combined counterprovocation plan which is a south korea-led u.s. supported contingency plan for challenges in the region and i know that was just signed in the last couple of weeks. could you share a little bit more
was going through some of the thoughts that occurred with miss of defense, welfare reform, social security, all these issues, they are not one shot deals. these are issues that come and then they hang around washington, and you have to keep refining them, have to be reaching new add convinces, you have to be kind of reselling them all the time. you have to make the sale time after time, day after day, and that's why you need an institution. you can't did a one person blogging machine who kind of is on a treadmill saying the same thing over and over again. you have to have an institution that goes out, sells those good ideas. it's been seven years now since dick cheney, the vice president, celebrated the 25th anniversary of reagan, 1983 strategic defense speech. it's now 32 year, and we just had obama say, yes, we have to beef up strategic defenses in the northwest part of the united states because it's north case in north korea. thirty-two years, we still don't have a fully deployed missile defense system. we talked about repealing the treaty with the soviet union because there's not been
know, when barack obama first came into office, we gave away a lot of missile defense scheduled to go into europe because we wanted to please the russians. we wanted to hit the reset button and look where that's gotten it. it's gotten us nothing except we've delayed protections for ourselves and our allies. we have to do what's best for our defense and our allies' defense and do what ronald reagan said. we should have peace through strength, not peace through weakness. peace through strength. lou: the north koreans have at least two missiles for launch, estimated to be, by all counts, and of course, you're far better briefed on this than the people but by all accounts a range of at least 2600 miles. how concerned are you that they will, indeed, be launched and what should be the u.s. response? >> well, fortunately, we do have some good theater missile defenses in place today, missile destroyers that we already had and we beefed that up. japanese had some with our help and they're deploying that and we have some inter continental ballistic missile interceptors, lou, in both california
weapons to resist the guards' sweep. defense attorneys say most of the prison's 166 prisoners are taking part in the hunger strike two months after it began. at least 11 prisoners are being force fed through nasal tubes. the latest unrest came one day after the international committee of the red cross wrapped up a three week visit to assess the prisoners' treatment. in an opinion piece published in the new york times, samir naji al hasan moqbel, a hunger striking prisoner held at guantanamo for 10 years without charge, writes -- the said it is set to take up gun control legislation today after voting to begin debate. proceedings follow a week of capitol hill lobbying by family members of victims of the shooting massacre at newtown, connecticut sandy hook elementary school. one of the mothers who lost her 6-year-old son delivered president obama's weekly address. >> i've heard people say the tidal wave of anguish our country felt has receded. but not for us. itus, it feels as if happened just yesterday. and in the four months since we lost our loved ones, thousands of other americans have
that the department of the defense to move forward in a different mode as far as that seamless transition between dod ask the v.a. that where the concern i have. i know we have a new secretary of dod. my question to you is, have you had any recent discussions with the new secretary of the department of defense, and are they willing to move forward with that seamless transition, i.e., are they willing to accept the system vista that v.a. owns and operates. the dod system is actually -- they purchased that system -- you you'll have to correct me -- so is dod willing to accept the vista system? and if so, how soon? >> thank you, congressman michaud. the v.a. decided the vista is our core system and we are moving forward on the ihr and still focused on the usual operating capability of 2014. and as you might expect this has been a topic of discussion with the new secretary of defense, secretary hagel. he is getting into the discussion. it is a complex one, and he wants to be sure he is structured correctly. he and i have discussed this as recently as yesterday. i believe we're on the same path here, and
overall, it is a defense of what he considers some of the crown jewels of our government and retire with dignity. everything he does is designed to make sure that they are as strong for future generations as it was for previous generations. >> [inaudible] >> what's that? >> [inaudible] >> i think it goes to 35. is that what you're talking about? it goes up a little higher as you go up the bracket. the highest being over 420,000 per couple. you are paying for a higher percentage of your medicare part b. everyone still has an incentive to be part of the medicare program. >> [inaudible] >> let me check. i want to make sure that we have the exact details. i will check on that. >> thank you. i want to note, if i could to end on gene's answer, is that when the president hears demands from republicans to include a proposal that we raise the retirement age for medicare and social security, he rejected that as he felt it was not good policy. thank you.

a missile defense systems on guam, japan, and on warships in the south china sea. kerry suggested if north korea steps back from the brink, the u.s. would reconsider those missile defenses. did you discuss with them also the possibility that some of the recent deployments of anti-missile defenses might be redeployed or stood down in pyongyang were to change its behavior? >> if the threat disappears, ie north korea denuclearizes, the same imperative does not exist at that point in time for us to have to have that kind of robust forward-leaning posture of defense. >> reporter: despite today's promises, experts doubt that china will really pressure north korea. its neighbor and close ally, even as it grows increasingly frustrated with kim jong-un's threats. >> they don't want to see north korea collapse. for this reason, they'll push him a little bit, but won't push the north koreans hard enough in a way that would help to reach a denuclearization outcome. >> reporter: u.s. officials say that china is already tightening its purse strings regarding north korea, but clearly not enough to get ki
.s. japan alliance has never been stronger than today. the u.s. is fully committed to the defense of japan. >> jamie: folks, this is really important stuff. greg palkot is streaming live from seoul, south korea, 30-miles from the border where everything may be going on now. what is the latest? >> as you explain, secretary of state kerry in the region, high stakes diplomatic tour to deal with that north korea threat. the looming missile launch. he finished a meeting with the japanese foreign minister and he has offered a possible peaceful resolution to the crisis. he is talking about negotiations. but at the same time, he is saying that north korea has to commit to give up the nuke. something they have not been willing to do. he also says that the u.s. stands redty to defend not just itself, but all its allies in the region. and he has this stern warning for pyongyang. take a listen. >> the north has to understand, and i believe must by now, that the threats and the provocations are only going to isolate it further. and impoverish its people even further. >> now just in the past, a few hour
missile, and several short-range missiles. defense analysts are trying to understand where all of this is headed. akimoto has been tracking the situation for the royal united services institute for defense and security studies, it's a british think tank. >> north korean commanders are mobilizing their troops. they want to respond to a joint military exercise by u.s. and south korean forces. with such tensions, north korean soldiers can't afford to be taking part in military parade. that said, there is little possibility of renewed fighting between the two koreas. u.s. and south korean commanders state their exercise to train their troops in joint operations. and to put on show of strength. leaders in pyongyang are simply responding to that. these are psych local tacticloi. we see little sign that ground troops are preparing for war. no troops have moved south. and we have no reports of anything unusual happening in pyongyang. military tensions always risk causing something unpredictable. a nervous front-line soldier could fire shot by mistake, prompting exchange of gunfire and
move to drop their nuclear program. members of north korea's national defense commission said the proposal was unacceptable. they called on the security counsel to retract economic penalties imposed after the country's latest missile launch and nuclear tests and demanded that u.s. and south korean commanders suspend military exercises currently under way in the south. the commission members also said the military forces and the people of north korea are closely watching what steps the u.s. and its followers will take. the remark suggests that there is still room for dialogue with the u.s. and south korea. >>> south korea's foreign minister is playing go between in an effort to keep an annual summit with japan and china on the calendar. yun byung-se in seoul says he will also raise the north korea issue. officials have been preparing to host the summit in late may. a diplomatic source saying young is expected to meet the other foreign ministers. the source says yung will try to convince the two ministers to proceed with the talks as planned. they believe it's too early to hold
their chance to put the latest defense witness in the hot seat. they're tough questions for domestic abuse expert. you'll hear them coming up. >> ors and the jodi arias trial hat tough questions for the domestic violence expert who has been on the stand for, like, forever. the expert testified that jodi arias suffered abuse at the hands of her ex-boyfriend before prosecutors say she shot him and stabbed him 27 times and slit his throat in, quote, self-defense. unquote. the jurors have some doubt. listen to this. >> how can you say that jodi and travis' relationship with domestic abuse when there's no proof other than name-calling on papers and jodi's words? >> there is -- it's the degree of name-calling, the degree of putdown, the level of escalation, and it's the words of his two closest friends, and his relationships with other women that aren't close. >> that same witness also testified that she had previously given a seminar entitled, is snow white a battered woman? arizona allows jurors submit questions to witnesses. jodi arias answer questions and many of the jurors asked, of all you
are fundamental individual right. americans have the right to self-defense and they have their right to have a gun in their home to protect their families. no one is going to take away these rights for these guns. the 2nd amendment rights are the foundation of which are discussion rest. they are not at risk. but what is at risk we cannot close our eyes to what is a risk. lives are at risk where responsible people fail to set up the laws to keep the guns out of the hands of those who will use them to to commit mass murder. i asked my fellow senators to focus our discussion and debate on these proposed statutory laws intended to better protect our children and all americans. ours is a free society, and open society, a wonderful society. we should be coming together as elected representatives for all the american people. considering a safer and more secure society. i would hope that all senators will join together in good faith to strengthen our law enforcement efforts against gun violence and to protect public safety. let's focus on our responsibilities to the american people. there are only 100 sen

korea and a conversation with michele flournoy a former senior defense department official about where the crisis in north korea stands. >> my worry is on the north korean side you have kim jung-un who is a very young inexperienced leader, the question is will he know when to stop? his father, hi grandfather knew up to... how to walk up to the line but stop short of war. the question is will he know how to do this or will he miscalculate because if he goes up the escalation ladder because of the geography, because of the tens of thousands of artillery aimed at seoul, the first hour of a full-out conflict would be very deadly for both sides. you would be very quickly into a full-scale war. that's the real concern.
